have voiced in some variation over the last few weeks. it appears to be a shift in america's view of the israeli/palestinian conflict, casting it as a national security issue directly for the united states. and the new approach comes amid talk of a new obama peace plan for the middle east. joining me to talk about all of this are rashid khalidi, professor of arab studies at columbia university, and bret stephens, foreign affairs columnist for the "wall street journal" and a frequent guest here. so what petraeus seems to be saying, i'm out there talking to these arab leaders, it hurts our relationship with them and makes it more difficult for them to ally with us, they all complain about this. so he's sort of reflecting that ground reality, no? >> i think there's some element of truth to that and it's certainly convenient for our political leaders to make the case that discontent in their country has to do with what settlements israel might be building in parts of jerusalem as opposed to saying their own policies, the oppression of the egyptians, of course they're going to blame is

, that number was 32,000 for every man, woman and child in america. that number has grown, a lot has changed over the year. >> dramatically. the deficits have almost gone up ten times, but it's important for people to understand that the threat to our future is not the short-term deficits, it's the deficits that will exist after the economy is recovered, after unemployment is down, after the wars are over, after we pass the crises. these so-called structural deficits threaten our future, both internationally and domestically, and we need to start doing something about it. >> we'll get to everyone else in a moment, but first let's rewind just a bit and pick up where we left off. >> in 2008, the national debt was $9.6 trillion. today it's almost 12.7 trillion, a 32% increase. that's nearly 41,000 for every american. and our budget deficits in national debt are only part of the problem. if you were to add up all of our nation's total liabilities and unfunded promises in social security, medicare and other programs, you would get over $62 trillion, 6 trillion more than in the fall of 2008. this
to change anything on the ground. why for example, france or the united states of america are dealing with these petty monarch kiss and dealing with governments implementing them. my position is quite clear.i'm against implementing them and what i'm asking the scholars, thee things what do the texts say what are the conditions and in which context? in the same name of islam, we have to stop and to come to a moratorium on this and to have a discussion exactly like amnesty international when it comes to death penalty it is saying let us first go for a moratorium to stop it right now and then to have a discussion. >> coming up, we will have more of that interview with tarik ramadan, as well as with james zogby who is the president of the arab-american institute on the differences between islam in america and in europe. that's next. thanks for coming. it was really nice to meet you, a.j. yeah, you too. a.j.?

capitalism and put america back on top and also ut biz editor with economists and one of the smartest journalists around. thank you for joining us. appreciate it. straight to it. give me the directions to the road from ruin. >> the book is really about our capitalism failed. had lehman brothers went bust and the rest of the financial system went into meltdown, that was clear evidence that we couldn't carry on as before. capitalism was not supposed to involve the government coming in and bailing out all the bankers. so in the book we set out an agenda for reforming capitalism so that it can actually work better and serve the public rather than serve a small group of people on wall street and set out a number of idea, the, some in of the current reforms pushing, others are not. more fundamental. >> what of the president's reforms do you agree with and in your road map first? >> one of the ideas i like, set up a consumer protection agency. i wish it wasn't being set up with the federal reserve, but as an independent agency. >> why? >> because i think the banking industry did exploit the
agenda? we'll talk about that tonight. >>> another hot topic is america a christian nation? that question prompted by the raging controversy over, of all things, the national day of prayer. just yesterday, the army disinvited evangelist franklin graham from the pentagon's event. graham has made some pretty controversial comments about islam, some of this show actually where he called it a very violent religion. so is america really one nation under god? >>> and on a very different note tonight, the supermodel who is taking potshots at celebrity plastic surgeries. paulina porizkova is here with very surprising and candid thoughts on true beauty. lots to get to. but we begin with "the mash-up." our number one international story, the deadliest day of the year in iraq. at least 61 people died. more than 100 were wounded in a wave of bombings in baghdad and nearby anbar province. >> just days after the killings of the two top al qaeda leaders in iraq, a wave of bombings have left dozens dead in baghdad and neighboring anbar province. >> mangled cars, buses clogging the streets outside two mos

. and everybody in america knows it is not going to be budget neutral. >> you know, you -- one of the things i think that catches people's ear is radical. is that helpful to the kind of dialogue that should be in politics? is it helpful to republicans who still fight the image of being kind of mane old white guys? >> did you know, my life in politics, i always told people to speak testimony prattly and act boldly. i don't -- radical is not a term that i use very often to describe anything. but there's no questions, as a matter of fact, that the policies being pursued by the obama administration are the farthest left -- it has been a gigantic lurch to the left. i think that's what speaker gingrich was trying to convey. the words i would use are -- the most left wing. because that's what the truth is. >> let me ask you about something else in -- the kind of tone politics. governor mcdonnell designated april as confederate month. something his two democratic predecessors refrained from doing. caused quite a stir. particularly because the governor did not even mention slavery in this proclamation.

immigrants crossing from mexico and from central america. so the reality that the police officers will be given free reign to question and ask, that's racial profiling at its best. >> we've been bringing you both sides even before it became front-page news and ignited heated debate nation wide. i had the arizona lawmaker who authored the bill in the newsroom. let's do this. let's roll the portion of that interview with state senator russell pierce. >> it's outrageous that we continue to have the anarchists and the open border while phoenix has 50% of the hom sized of phoenix are committed by illegal aliens. phoenix is number two in the world in kidnappings. it's become the home invasion, carjacking and identity theft capital of the world. we're not putting up with it anymore. >> so let's focus on the concern over violence. our josh levs has a bit of a fact check. josh. >> at the time when you heard the numbers we thought we have to fact check this. of course, we do. the idea about half of the homicides in that area coming from illegal immigrants. let me go straight to the facts fo
